I know I'm not supposed to do it for """safety""" and even if it's my 216845684th time posting this kind of topic I still had no answer. Why am I asking this ? Because my computer is overheating. Please answer to the question.

You have been told many times that you could add a faster RPM fan to keep it cooler. If I had your issues, I would fix the problem by adding fans. You did refuse to spend a few $$ based only on the fact that you spend $$$$ on the computer. You unit only has 1 exhaust fan. My system has 8x120mm fans and 2 additional side fans. CPU is 43C, Samsung 850 EVO is 30C, GTX 1080 Zotac Extreme is 30C. Fan sensors indicate a maximum of 1500 RPM at this moment in time.
No one has insulted you, or attempted to belittle you. But, I do have to ask now. What is the temperature in your computer room ? Min is 23C. That does have a bearing on computer thermal.
If any of these thin fans would fit inside, mounted on the side panel, I would make the cut-out.

Hey, my computer's room is 25°C right now and have my cpu still peaking at 98°C .
"You have been told many times that you could add a faster RPM fan to keep it cooler. If I had your issues, I would fix the problem by adding fans." The point is that I want to add a faster RPM without buying a fan, that's why I keep asking it. I know that it's possible to do it on a computer and all I'm asking is how I can change it. If I can't, just tell me, otherwise, tell me how to change my fans speed.

@Taboule, here is an article that you should read:
It will tell you the two types of fans and which fan header (3-pin or 4-pin (PWM) is used to connect them to the motherboard. The PWM fans can be controlled more easily, I believe that your fans are most likely the 3-pin type. There are several apps that can be used to control the fan speed. SpeedFan mentioned in the article is a bit complicated and has a learning curve, but it does work.
